Expand div to take remaining width
gives a nice way to make a div use the remaining width. But what if the remaining width approaches 0? I have 2 divs: one with an image in a float left that's the width of the image, and the second with some text. As the window width narrows, the width of the 2nd div becomes narrower and narrower until it disappears (and then moves below the 1st div, which is correct). I want to keep a minimum width for the 2nd div, which I'm trying to do with min-width. But it seems to make no difference. Any suggestions?
<div style="float: left;">
<div style="overflow:hidden; min-width:60px">
<p>Some text ...</p>
